BEAUTY REVIEW - Connock London's Wonderbalm
Hawaii to the rescue again, they sure know what they are doing when it comes to skin care, and if their women are anything to go by - Nicole Scherzinger - I definitely need a bit of what they have! Containing Kukui Oil, used for centuries by the natives and traditionally for new born babies to protect their fragile skin from the harsh effects of the glaring sun, abrasive salt water and drying winds this really is a miracle balm.
The incredibly silky balm is suitable for any area of the body, I found it particularly useful in soothing sensitive areas of the skin that had somehow escaped a barrier of sun-cream, like my eyelids and chicken bits (the unattractive floppy bits of skin by the armpit) and the top of my shoulders and ears. As well as it’s calming effects the product is a brilliant emollient and left all areas treated to an application incredibly soft.
The oil contains very high levels of linoleic and alpha linoleic acids ( essential fatty acids) and as well its aforemetioned powers tending to skin affected by sun exposure it is also said to aid those suffering with symptoms connected to Eczema, Psoriasis and acne.
When your holiday day-bag is bursting at the seams, jam packed with sun creams, tanning oils, hair protectors and all the other must-have holiday gubbins, the compact, pocket sized frame of the Wonderbalm means that it needn’t get lost in the chaos, it can reside in its very own sweaty habitat of your short pockets instead..... handy!
